Did you go to the manufacturer's website and update all of your drivers to windows 7 drivers? Did you go to control panel>power settings and adjust your power settings after installing? Was this an upgrade install or a clean install? Which OS was originally on there?

If all else fails, read instructions.

If your laptop is not supported by the manufacturer for Win 7, you may be able to continue using Win 7 but such features as hibernate may not function properly.

If you cannot find W7 drivers from the laptop manufacturer, try component manufacturers's drivers, such as Ati, NVidia, etc. I know Ati now release drivers for laptops as well. Just go to AMD website and check if your gfx chipset is supported (provided you have Ati chipset).

Hope this info is helpful.

It could be that the wake up is not enabled in the BIOS. Remove the battery fo twenty seconds and then it should start. Also if you have this trouble and you eventually get it started you might find thet the internal pointing device ie the mouse is also disabled in the BIOS. You can access the BIOs by hitting either F2, OR F8 OR F12 It various on different machines.

This is an older post. If the original poster choose not to reply back in June, They are probably not following it anymore, probably solved. Unfortunately many do not tell us if they solved the issue.

You laptop has a recovery partition. This will return your machine back to the day you purchased it. If the problem is annoying enough, you need to save all of your files to an external storage (like a portable hard drive, transferred to a desktop computer, or burned to DVD's) and then access the recovery program. Also note that every program you have now, if you added them, will need to be reinstalled so collect your install disks, any key codes, and get fresh copies of all downloaded programs if you can (copy to flash drive or put where you back up your files). As soon as you finish a factory recovery, you will need to do a manual Windows update and then install/activate your antivirus program. After it is running right and you have adjusted your personal settings, reinstall your programs and copy back your files (keep back up if you can).
To access your recovery partition you typically press a specific 'F' key while booting up. Since you have not supplied a manufacturer, look in your manual or check your manufacturer's website for which key to press for recovery.

Sorry, I just reread the thread. I guess I was mixing up two threads.
You will have to use the install or upgrade DVD to do a clean install after saving your data, just make sure you indicate that it is a laptop during the install questioning to make sure the hibernate option is readily available later. Choose Custom and Format to do a completely clean install. and make sure you have all of your drivers ready to reinstall again.
Again I am sorry, I must have been tired.
